'll remove them. kennedy fry to work out what defensive mean. what is it we can't live with and can live with in cuba? the american doctrine has different idea. the soviet doctrine, we goat the details there, but there's a struggle to prove what the understanding is. the long range bombers to the americans, these had about 750 mile range. they could hate lot of the southeast sides. they were very old. they were obsolete. they weren't much match for the american anti-- the american offense system in the southeastern united states. but the problem was -- and let's backtrack. kennedy himself did not think these were particularly a big problem. and actually it comes through on the tapes as the one who is least worried about the il27. he's on tape a few things saying we don't want it get hung on these. i thought we were being a bit unreasonable trying to get them out. he's trying to put himself in crew shove's position. we have to get them out. even ia military threat in the clin cap sense. to the american public, they are not going to be allowed to stay. we can't live with the american publi

is not probably what he's going to do. he doesn't immediately jump to the defense of cuba. and he looks halfway around the world to where the peace deal is most vulnerable. .. and kirchoff kept bringing up her land that we are going to bring this up in november at the united nations after the midterm election. so he had been broadcasting this to the summer. kennedy had been reading all of these reports. the conditions going into this process to believe that kirchoff is going to force the issue. that the issue that kennedy keeps coming back to cuba. so if u.s. kennedy would be sent to hear an kennedy himself was talking about this, kennedy would say, west berlin. he would not say defensive cuba. so the cuba angle doesn't come through a lot. they're not really thinking this through because it doesn't make sense. the way that it's in 1962 would be to do some kind of mutual trudy were to spend lots of conventional weapons, which is what they were doing, but not then long-range missiles that the united states. >> is funny, khrushchev saturday said that tactical fields. he would've had a a hard time

. the story of the election is a story of such excitement and random defense that it's almost impossible to capture. we could go on for hours on just this topic but his record in american politics is extraordinarily brief. he has a term in congress at the end of which he is so unpopular he doesn't run for reelection. the thing the state legislature doesn't tell you anything about your ability to be president and he hadn't even been in the state's legislature for quite awhile before he runs a 1960. he's run for the senate twice and he's been defeated both times. basically he's a national celebrity because of the dates with douglas which at the end of the day he lost and the speech in new york nobody was scoring the debate. at the end of the day the purpose of the the date was to win the election and he didn't win the election. and a speech he gave in new york to lead the way i like to think about is we can remember barack obama's speech in 2004 in the democratic national convention that makes him a national figure in four years later without that speech he isn't a candidate so lincoln giv

national defense, but we have to point out it wasn't the conservatives. so there is the way in which everyone is happy in america delicious milk and butter and then johnson invests it goes off to war. >> i spend a lot of time trying to explain why he did this because as you describe it, it sounds crazy. johnson, like kennedy, like eisenhower, like sherman, from truman about three presidents were on record as was the majority of congress is saying the united states, headed the free world and was still a very strong cold war climate. of course the bay of pigs would have been just a couple years before that in 1862, that the united states had the responsibility to protect the independence of nations from communistic russia. this may south vietnam. now, kennedy had raised troop levels. i won't go into all the things that truman and eisenhower did, but right alone, we are very heavily involved in protect and south vietnam and johnston believed that these prior commitments committed him. he also is a strong cold war era. he is to comment on how the young people protesting simply didn't und

anybody not just from a sioux word but with edward stand in the secretary of defense with various generals, again without that it is difficult to see how they prosecute the war because this wasn't a unified society to read this had to be managed constantly and steered in this incredible endeavor. >> host: let's look at the third president who is also on extreme, this is what role willson. does this turnout as happily as abraham lincoln? >> guest: not even close. so, wilson is one of the extremes. he is as on filtered as it is possible to get. he is the least experienced in terms of time and politics and the person ever elected president. he has at the time he becomes president the total political experience is about one and a half years as the governor of new jersey so she's in the legislator office, the governor of new jersey becomes president. >> he's written a lot about politics. >> guest: he's like me, a political scientist. i suppose that should make me more favorably disposed to him, but academic research on politics is in the same thing as doing politics, and it's not the same thing

but with stanton who would replace cameron as secretary of defense in various generals, it's difficult. this was not a unified society. this was one i had to be managed constantly and a typical endeavor. >> host: okay, so let's look at your third president who was also as extreme as woodrow wilson. does this turn out exactly is abraham lincoln? >> guest: not even close. wilson again is as unfiltered as you can possibly get. wilson impact is the least experienced in terms of time in politics, the least experienced person ever elected president. at the time he becomes president, his total political experience, all of it, is about 1.5 years so he is not spending a day in the legislature. he gets elected president. >> host: he has written a lot about politics. >> guest: like me has a political scientist. i suppose that should make the more favorably disposed toward him but academic research on politics is not the same thing as doing politics and not the same thing as the experience. in some ways we value experience too much. experiences about moving you up the learning curve. the other thi
